Spring, summer, winter - whatever the weather there's always a reason to get outside and burn some calories whilst having fun. 2012 saw the UK come alive with in the name of sport to celebrate the Olympic Games. With that sense of sporty adventure still pulsing through our nation, no doubt the next few years will see a boost in outdoor activities. Whether you want to brush up on an old hobby or start from scratch - we're here to provide some tips on how to how to tire out your body and not your wallet.
Imagine the scene: No membership fees, no queues, no crowds, the opportunity to work out and improve your general fitness, all in the comfort of your own home. There are loads of benefits to investing in a home gym but with so much choice out there it can be tricky to know whether you're getting the best deal. The first thing to decide is what area of exercise you'd like to focus on. For example, if you're after a full-on aerobic work out, then perhaps you'd be best investing in an exercise bike. Not only do these items take up very little space but they are great at getting your heartrate up. If burning fat is your goal, then this could be the product for you.
As always, it's important to shop around for the best deal. You'll find them in places like Tesco Direct, Argos and Gym World with prices range from £80 to around £300 depending on what model you're after. Of course, this will be a choice only you can make based on your experience level. The same goes for rowing machines. These are generally considered to offer the best all round body workout and help to strengthen the arms, legs and back. What's more, many models are foldable and can be easily stored around the home.
If you're looking to build up muscle mass, then your sights should be set on securing the perfect weight bench. While these items may take up a little more room, they more than make up for it in usability. A typical weight bench has many uses, especially when combined with free weights. In addition to strength training, the bench itself can be used for sit ups and core exercises. Some models come with bench press stands to the rear, perfect for honing your chest and triceps. Again, prices vary. Have a good look at our selection of retailers before you buy, depending on how dedicated you are about muscle work, you could take home a weight bench for as little as £39.99. Meanwhile, more advanced models could set you back around £200. Remember: Shop around before you shred!
What better way to spend those hazy summer evenings than speeding across the landscape on a brand new bicycle. Cycling is a form of exercise that's been steadily growing in popularity in recent years. A whopping 3.7 million bikes were sold across the UK in 2010 and that trend shows no sign of slowing. It's a sport that can be fast and exciting or leisurely and relaxed depending on your tastes and best of all it's great for the environment. Hop on your bike and you'll be saving money in no time, leaving those pesky petrol prices in the dust. However, as with all sports, it's best to know a little about what you're after before you buy. Let's begin.
The average mountain bike will set you back at least £100. They're heavy duty and rightly so, they're built for enduring rocks, logs and rugged terrain. Most models come equipped with gears and large 26-inch wheels. We've got loads of great retailers on our site who can help you get moving for less so make sure you check out the likes of Halfords, Evans Cycles and Bikes Direct 365. The same stores will be able to provide you with useful information on touring bikes and road bikes. These are more aerodynamic and tailored specifically to those who prefer intense workouts and speed.
On the other end of the spectrum, the traditional comfort bike would be a perfect option for those who'd like to ease themselves into this sport one step at a time. They're built with a shorter distance between the seat and the handlebars to help you sit easier and many of them boast shock absorbers, padded seats and wide pedals. All of these features combined aim to make the transition from from couch potato to cyclist extraordinaire as painless as possible. With so many options available, there's really no excuse not to get active!
The nation's favourite sport couldn't be easier to pick up and do yourself, all you need is a little motivation. Football is a sport that you can prepare for long before you've left the house and arrived at the muddy pitch. We offer a roster of retailers who can get you kitted out in the latest football shirts for a lot less than you'd think. Whether you're a Manchester United fan or more of an Arsenal type, you're bound to find a shirt to suit your needs without breaking the bank. The same goes for footwear. A quick look at our Sports Direct, JD Sports or Reebok retailer pages (just to name a few) will provide you with a whole host of money saving offers, bagging you the best value boots available.
Whilst surfing for deals, make sure you check out what additional equipment is available. If you're a budding football coach, then our site could have a lot to offer you and your rag-tag group of football fanatics. Many outlets offer items such as kids training nets for as little as £39.99, while others can provide you with reasonably priced training items like sports marker cones, ball carrying sacks and training bibs. Corner flags, gloves and shin pads are also readily available at very reasonable prices, helping you to get yourself and others active for less.
Of course, the center point to any football-based shopping spree is the ball itself. There are many different factors to take into consideration when buying footballs. Size, quality and the conditions under which the ball will be used should factor into your choice. There are generally three sizes of football: Size 3 is designed for players up to age 9, size 4 is tailored for players aged 9-13 and size 5 is made with everyone 14 and above in mind. It's also worth thinking about where the ball will be used, is it for training? Matches? Recreational? A quick think about these aspects should inform your choice of purchase.
Not all sport involves breaking a sweat, you know. Fishing is a therapeutic, relaxing and enjoyable outdoor activity that's seen a boom in popularity in recent years. Best of all, it's an inexpensive hobby that almost anyone can pick up. That said, it's always best to shop around to guarantee you're getting the best deal before heading to the water. Luckily for us, today's retailers have made it easier than ever to get our hands on some durable fishing gear. A quick visit to Sports Direct, Fish Tec or even Sainsbury's will provide you with a wealth of products to choose from. Time to reel in some deals...
First things first. If you want to take up fishing, you're going to need a fishing rod. Before you shop, it's probably best to decide what type of fishing you'll be doing. For example, casting would require a flexible rod and a conventional reel, ideal for use with lures, bait and floats. If you're looking to try your hand at inshore fishing, you'd be best searching for a sturdier pole that can accommodate the weight of a decent sized fish but isn't so heavy that it makes using it a chore. If you're new to the sport, then maybe a spinning rod would be right for you. As you may have guessed, this model uses a spinning reel. It can cast lighter lures and is a popular choice for budding anglers.
With your fishing rod bought, there are lots of added extras available to help you on your way. Bait can be bought for as little as £1.59 from some outlets, while nets, tackle and extra fishing lines can yours for similarly low prices. Don't forget, you may be able to kit yourself out with the latest equipment but good weather conditions can't be bought. With that in mind, a quick browse at the various waterproof jackets, bags and tackle cases on offer should definitely be on your ‘To Do' list. You certainly won't regret it when those moody rain clouds start to gather overhead. With all the bases covered, you could find yourself hooked on fishing in no time!
For many, a session on the golf course is an excuse to blow off some steam, get away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life and socialise in a non-work environment. Considering these factors, it's not surprising that this game is often referred to as the relaxation sport of choice. However, whether you're looking to take up golf as an activity you engage in once or twice a month or if you're looking to step up your game and clock up some serious tee time, there's no need to break the bank. There are plenty of golfing stores out there that take the financial sting out of adopting a new sport into your everyday life.
When shopping for clubs, it's important to do your research. Golf equipment has advanced leaps and bounds in recent years, all in the name of helping you to improve your game. A quick search online at the options available will help you decide what items will be best suited to you and your price range. For example, when it comes to golf clubs, there are generally two types of shaft: steel and graphite. While the latter is usually much lighter and can greatly improve your swing speed, the former can be more durable and much cheaper. To decide what's best for you, a quick trip to the likes of Golf Store Europe or Golfonline should your first port of call.
Once you've safely secured your clubs and balls for hole-in-one prices your next goal should be tracking down the perfect course clothes. Most golf greens come with a dress code and the last thing you want is to look like the odd one out while perfecting your swing. Drop by Golf Garb or Golf Poser and you'll find enough course attire to fill your wardrobe for the foreseeable future. Catering for both men and women, these stores provide a range of polo shirts, sweaters, shorts and waterproofs as well as an array of golfing accessories for very favourable prices. Who knows? Taking up a new sport could transform your look and lifestyle for the better!
